I need to get a new medical bracelet. Mine fell off at Sunday River in 2009, and I just haven’t gotten around to it. (Don’t yell at me, my mother has that covered.)
This is the thing. I don’t trust frilly ID bracelets. I get suspicious that if it were ever needed to save my life, that someone would look right past it. I know that beads on an ID bracelet are commonplace now, but not for me. For fifteen years I had that bracelet in the picture. (Charm) The new one arrived in my mailbox on Halloween while I was in college; the same day I had my first appointment with an adult endo. As a kid, I hated watches and bracelets, because I had that one. I like watches now (although, with a pump, who needs one?), but I’m still picky about bracelets. People have always given them to me, so I have a great collection, and I’ll use them to make a specific outfit, but that’s about it.
I have tried to go over to the “get a pretty medical ID” party, but I just can’t. Both of my previous ones came directly from Medic Alert, and I’ve looked here (but not in a while). I don’t want to limit my options by saying I will only buy from them though. My mother sent me a link this morning, and I found one that I love. But I’m worried about it. Will this style stay on my wrist? Would I be worried about it? I want a bracelet that is there and I don’t have to worry about. I have a few beautiful bracelets at my parents’ house. Could those get charms and that’s it? One of them looks like the cuff, but is a regular bracelet. I know that those wouldn’t come off of my wrist.
If anyone has any suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated!
